The first annual "Indiana" competition was held in Fishers, Indiana in 2011. There were 75 competitors, and the winning 3x3x3 average was 10.16 by Anthony Brooks.
From 2011-2015, the Indiana competitions were organized by Mike Hughey. In 2016, Nathan Dwyer and Tyler Brodzinski organized the Indiana 2016 competition in Fort Wayne, at the same venue that would host CubingUSA Nationals in 2017. There was no Indiana 2017 or Indiana 2018, since in those years Fort Wayne was the host city of CubingUSA Nationals and CubingUSA Great Lakes Championship, respectively.
